Re: 1983 Tercel 4WD SR5 Wagon | Overland Build

Finally got around to finishing up V.1 of my Tercel Battery Clamp Down Bracket after settling on a car battery (Group 34) Originally I wanted to keep it OEM but every single bracket I found at the scrapyard was rusted to hell and to my knowledge Toyota doesn't carry them anymore. Here is a battery ...

Re: 1983 Tercel 4WD SR5 Wagon | Overland Build

front suspension and cross member spacers can be made from aluminum plat stock easy enough. someone used HDPE to space down the top of the strut, used a cheap cutting board from walmart.

Photo Dump For those of you who are not on the FB group or who do not follow me on IG (@tercel4wd), this is what the "totaled" $350 Copart car from Eugene, Oregon looks like after a lil' elbow grease and a little imagination.

Re: 1983 Tercel 4WD SR5 Wagon | Overland Build

Topic #1: Remanufactured axles for ancient, obsolete foreign cars are not to be trusted. In the Subaru community, the general consensus is that OEM axles are superior and that every effort should be made to quickly I.D. a torn boot, replace the boot and re-grease the original CV/DOJ.

🔻 The EL gear in this thing is OP 💪🏼👵🏻 I was stopped at a stoplight on my way to drop off some packages at UPS and when I popped it into 1st there was a SUPER LOUD clunk.

Re: 1983 Tercel Wagon 4WD SR5 | Overland Build
